    AYSL Program Details * New Year Long Programming*

    Program Plan August to August Please note that starting in August 2023 and going forward, AYSL will run a year-long program from August to July each year with only 1 registration period in August. This program fee will be divided into 5 payments covering the whole year. 

    When looking at your child’s AYSL Program you need to look at many factors of what the club is providing. We have done our program planning against what all clubs offer and feel we provide the best value to any player in this program. Notwithstanding the fact that our players get Academy under the guidance of Uefa Pro Munib Koric, we also offer the most training hours per season, provide transportation for out-of-town AYSL games, provide more video game recordings and analysis and always ensure physio is provided when we are the home team of any game.  Munib is the highest certified staff in Alberta and will be one of only a handful of coaches in all off football who will have completed Uefa Pro (completed) & Uefa Super Youth Elite ( finishing 2024).

    We will be looking to have an Open House at the Villains Training Centre prior to the Intake for all new AYSL groups. Teams from previous years will continue training camp and new players will be brought into these training camps. When it is a new intake program which happens in March of each year we will run open assessments for those new team selections. 

    New Players – If your son or daughter was not a part of an AYSL intake or was not registered with our program and would like to be considered for our program please email AYSL lead Calvin Campbell

    As per CMSA rules, all open houses and club programming trials will take place during the open contact period. You are able to register for our programs through the club memberzone and that can be done when registration opens – February 1st & August 15 of each year. 

    Future APDL Players

    New players from outside the club who are not currently in AYSL during the normal CMSA registration windows.  You will need to contact the club to take part in any assessments and training camp to be placed on our roster.

    Please note any movement from AYSL to another AYSL club is only approved by the league governance at Alberta Soccer and in most cases will not be approved.

    Should you have any questions on AYSL please reach out to program leads Calvin Campbell –

    Mike Lau –


    Calgary Villains FC was awarded the National Youth Club License in 2020 and as a result, has been approved to take part in the Alberta Youth Soccer League (AYSL). 

    We are 1 of 3 new AYSL clubs for the 2007 and 2008 intake and only these clubs who have already been announced can take part in this program for this age group.

    The planned implementation will be one new birth year annually at the U14 age group for both boys and girls. This league is limited to those only who have achieved the National Youth Club License and those clubs must maintain a specific standard to stay in the league.

    How Does One Obtain The License: The Canada Soccer National Youth Club License recognizes the highest achieving organizations from across Canada and rewards them with the Canada Soccer Approved Youth Soccer Club endorsement. Organizations achieving this license display characteristics and demonstrate behaviours aligned with the highest expectations of governance, administration, infrastructure, and technical support their PTSO and Canada Soccer Pathways and participate in the highest level of competition in Canada; the Canada Soccer Player Development Program.

    Program Intake: All players from our club in the intake age group will be invited to an open combine and players outside the club will also be allowed to take part but must email the club to fill out the proper paperwork for liability and insurance purposes.


    We will run in-house drop-in sessions for our own AYSL intake so we have an understanding of who wants to play from both inside the club and outside the club. With our new training center and clubhouse located at Blackfoot and Glenmore, we will be able to provide a more detailed training program for our players and be able to ensure a full-year program for the teams.

    New players will have program intakes in August of each new season.


    GGX – This program is run by UEFA pro-Munib Koric who is our club academy director. This program is designed for Villain players wanting additional sessions outside the club program training. Priority is given to Villains families first and will only allow outside players if we are not full.  We are running GGX programs for Pioneers U9-U11, Juniors U12-U13, Senior U14-U17 ( including aysl).

    Year Round Program

    AYSL has become a year-round training program that will have an intake period come August of each season.  New players to the club will need to register through our player inquiry form and through that process we will invite players out to training.  Returning players will continue to train through August and new players will come to training camp to see if they can make the team.  New groups into AYSL will have full open sessions to look at players at that level. 


    Our academy director has created and developed some of the best partnerships with academies across the world due to his former playing career. This has allowed us to send teams to Brazil, Germany, Scotland, Spain, England, Austria to name a few. We look to offer European Tours every season over spring break in March or in the middle of August depending on location. Please see our Camps and Academy tab for more information on our European Tour brochures and destinations.
